Happy New Year!!!!!!!!

A look at some of Eun Bo's different hanboks in Episode 4:heart:

 

I love the attention to detail with the clothing in this drama.  Something I noticed that even in the gantaek where all the girls have the standard yellow/red hanboks but they obviously are made out of different fabrics according to the family's wealth, for instance the material of Kim Song Yi's is a lot richer and has subtle patterns on it.

 

Same with the attention to detail the hair on the girls in the drama.  They all have slightly different hairstyles with some beautiful plaits and braiding incorporated into the standard unmarried maiden's hairstyle.

Hi Chingus, I am new to this drama forum though have been a silent stalker from the start!

I am so excited by this drama - 1st in a long time.

 

Anyone has any guesses on which direction this drama will take. For me in a way, i am hoping we don't see a cookie cutter idealistic heroine ala Rookie Historian...where for me i loved the 1st half then somehwo got lost in the middle.

Welcome to the thread!  So happy you decided to post :smiley:

Well, I think as a female heroine in a romantic sageuk Eun Bo isn't going to be a morally grey character as the script clearly shows she is fundamentally a good person.  For instance, aside from her physical advantage I don't see her as the type of person who will cheat during the Selection process. She is being pretty ruthless going after the Queen's position purely for power and revenge but she is doing it to avenge her family so I think most people would consider those as "justifiable" reasons. I do think so far Eun Bo seems a lot smarter, streetwise and more savvy than some other heroines. She is pretty pragmatic and doesn't seem at all idealistic or interested in politics yet.  I do wonder if reading her father's writings will change her outlook on the world. We know she will definitely soften once she gets to know the King, develops feelings for him and realises that Baek Ja Yong is not being entirely honest with her about the circumstances surrounding her father's death or the tiny matter of his rebellious intentions but I am hoping she remains proactive and intelligent and doesn't lose her spirit like so many female leads do once they fall in love.

i´m really bad at guessing but I just hope that all the characters stay strong.

I hope Kyung and Eun Bo will stay strong.  I need to see them start to work together and sharing their knowledge because these two will make a Joseon detective team Power Couple!

I like that Wal and EB are just friends.

He doesnt seems to be secretly in love with her.

Maybe one of the ministers arrested Wal to blackmail EB, or to

extract some information about her.

Same. Euin Bo and Wal have a fun, bickering brother- sister relationship.  Personally, I would feel very uncomfortable if Wal had a crush on her given the large age gap.  it would seem predatory.

I was thinking Wal might have been caught after following the hunters.

 

New making video:

Subtitles (thanks to lighthoney1610 IG)

Happy New Year ! Bonne Année tout le monde :heart:

I've only watched some video clips of today ep;

I think Eun Bo knows Lee Kyung isn't the culprit who killed her sister

after seeing his reactions when he saw her !

I think she knows the King loves her sister ( exactly he loves her, Eun Bo, but she'll know after)

And I hope she'll know too that Lee Jae-Hwa and Baek Ja-yong don't want helping her, 

they just use her for their but.

Unfortunately for Jo Yong-Il, she's a good girl but she has a bad dad !

Happy New Year!  :lol:

I'm just waiting for the translation to be completed but I am sure after how he has reacted to her Eun Bo must know he isn't behind her sister's death. I felt so sorry for the King in this episode.  He was so confused, shocked and hurt :bawling: 

She stood her ground with the king even though his reaction obviously threw her off.  I like how this episode showed Eun Bo is very smart, can think under pressure and is strong-willed. 

It looks like his future visions are only related to Eun Bo.

Kim Song Yi is very mean just like everybody in her family.  Jo Young Ji might not be doing anything bad herself but she knows her father will play dirty and she is getting special treatment from the Court Ladies and she is going along with it.

People enjoy the New Year a little long so why there's no sub yet for ep 5 haizzzz !

I think there's a relationship between the TV channel Chosun with MBC  ????

because the actors and actresses wear traditional costumes

that are very pretty and chic.

for me, MBC is the specialist in historical dramas.

Like in The moon that embraces the sun; Lee Kyung has 2 loyal subjects

beside him : Hwang eunuch and his bodyguard  like Lee Hwon !

But Lee Kyung is luckier than Lee Hwon that he has the support of his

grand-mother, Queen Dowager even not completely...when Lee Hwon has not !

So OUR smart , handsome and poor  King has the .....9th sense now

bc Netflix had aiready Sense 8 :glasses::love:

Happy New Year 2020 Chingus :D

 

Nice episode 5.

- Interesting now the King has some kind of super power to see the future via his dream?? but only related to his Eun Ki. Well I do hope he can use it to protect her. Silly Eunuch Hwang , he made fun of King's dream.

- It is so funny when the minister talked about "What if Kang Yi Soo come back to life too?" Haha

- The King said there's something different with the new EunKi (EunBo) - their eyes; So I re watched episode 1, and yes ....the way EunKi's eyes gazed towards the King were very lovely, meanwhile EunBo's eyes are puzzling. Our King is so smart, I'm sure he will recognize soon that lady Hong Yeon candidate is not the ex-Queen and I hope the King will fall in love once more with the mischievous EunBo sooner.

I found Kim Song Yi's actress Lee Hwa Kyum has resemblance face with actress Yu In Young, even their voice and eyes..what do you think? *just for fun*

Oh so that's who she reminded me of. I thought she looked like someone I've seen in other dramas. If I look at them side by side, they look different. But separately, yeah, there are definitely similarities (is it the lips?) 

 

@wilis2451 I just watched ep.05 and while I was 90% sure the spoiler you shared was going to happen, the way ep.05 ended gave me doubts, hence the 10% going towards the JaeHwa. Anyway, excited to watch ep.06!!

 

@diane90 I think the subs are coming quicker now, I think because the drama is gaining popularity and exposure. Previously it took about 2 days to view a subbed episode, I feel like.
